Vasant Panchami

Vasant Panchami
Contributed by Acharya Satyam Sharma Shastri
Montagne-Blanche Village, Mauritius

[Vasant Panchami is a festival full of religious, seasonal and social significance and is celebrated by Hindus all over the world with verve and new sense of optimism.]

Vasant Panchami is the festival dedicated to Saraswati, the goddess of learning. (Deepavali is dedicated to Lakshmi, goddess of wealth, and Navaratri Durga is dedicated primarily to Kali, goddess of strength, might and power.)

Magh Sud 5 (5th day of the bright fortnight of the lunar month of Magh) is the day of Vasant Panchami. Hindus all over the world celebrate this festival with great enthusiasm. This Panchami is also known as Saraswati Day. It is believed that this day is Saraswati’s birthday. Hindu temples are full of activities on this day.

Yellow colour is given special importance on this day. On Vasant Panchami, Saraswati is dressed in yellow garments and worshipped (with Puja, Havan etc.). Men and women try to wear yellow clothes on this day. Sweetmeats of yellowish hues are exchanged with relations and friends

Some people feed Brahmanas on this day. Pitri-Tarpan (ancestor worship) is done on this day. The god of love (Kamdev) is also worshipped on this day.

Children are taught their first words on this day (as an auspicious beginning to learning). Schools, colleges etc., (places of learning) organise special worship of Saraswati. Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya laid the foundations of Kashi Hindu Vishwa Vidyalaya on Vasant Panchami. This has become a world famous top class academic institution.

Hinduism has taken into account special significance of seasons and interwoven that with religious festivals e.g., Makar Sakranti, Vasant Panchami. People generally feel inclined to worship the presiding deity of the family (Ishta Devata or Devi) according to the individual’s faith and desires. Also, people generally tend to accumulate wealth and power. During the Kali Yuga (present age), the pursuit of money (wealth, power, name and fame) is everything to most people. Money is accorded god-like status.

But men of principle (men who can discriminate) worship goddess Saraswati for spiritual enlightenment. In their opinion, there can be no comparison between the king and the learned (spiritually advanced). The king is honoured within his kingdom, whereas the learned is respected (or worshipped) everywhere. Saintly people and people inclined towards spiritual progress attach great importance to the worship of goddess Saraswati.

The vehicle assigned to each of the three goddesses also symbolically represent their special powers. The white swan of Saraswati is symbolising Sattwa Guna (purity and discrimination). The owl of Lakshmi and the lion or tiger of Durga symbolise the other two gunas (Rajas and Tamas).

The first faint signals of the forthcoming festival of Holi manifest at Vasant Panchami. Seasons undergo change. The coming of springtime is heralded. Trees are displaying new shoots. New life is evident in the woods and fields. Nature decorates Mango trees with new blossoms. Wheat and other crops enliven with evidence of new life.

Vasant Panchami is a festival full of religious, seasonal and social significance and is celebrated by Hindus all over the world with verve and new sense of optimism.

Vasant Panchami
By Swami Shivananda
The Divine Life Society, Rishikesh

Vasant means, "the spring season". This is the great spring festival, falling on the fifth day of the month of Magh, the first day of spring.

On this day everyone wears a yellow cloth. It represents the ripening of the spring crops. Even the food is coloured yellow by using saffron. Spiritually, the yellow colour is a sign of prosperity; it is the colour of love.

On this day we offer special worship to the sun god, to Mother Ganga (the deity of the sacred river Ganges), and Mother Earth. They provide us the means of acquiring food and all that we need to keep alive. We express our gratitude to them by worshipping them. Hindus are ever mindful of the debt they owe to all nature. Worship of nature is extremely important to them.

Subject: Geert Wilders speech in New York. A MUST READ BY EVERY INDIAN.

Subject: Geert Wilders speech in New York. A MUST READ BY EVERY INDIAN.

Geert Wilders, chairman Party for Freedom, the Netherlands

Speech at the Four Seasons, New York

September 25, 2008

Dear friends,

Thank you very much for inviting me. Great to be at the Four Seasons. I come from a country that has one season only: a rainy season that starts January 1st and ends December 31st. When we have three sunny days in a row, the government declares a national emergency. So Four Seasons, that's new to me.

It's great to be in New York. When I see the skyscrapers and office buildings, I think of what Ayn Rand said: "The sky over New York and the will of man made visible." Of course. Without the Dutch you would have been nowhere, still figuring out how to buy this island from the Indians. But we are glad we did it for you. And, frankly, you did a far better job than we possibly could have done.

I come to America with a mission. All is not well in the old world. There is a tremendous danger looming, and it is very difficult to be optimistic. We might be in the final stages of the Islamization of Europe. This not only is a clear and present danger to the future of Europe itself, it is a threat to America and the sheer survival of the West. The danger I see looming is the scenario of America as the last man standing. The United States as the last bastion of Western civilization, facing an Islamic Europe. In a generation or two, the US will ask itself: who lost Europe? Patriots from around Europe risk their lives every day to prevent precisely this scenario form becoming a reality.

My short lecture consists of 4 parts.

First I will describe the situation on the ground in Europe. Then, I will say a few things about Islam. Thirdly, if you are still here, I will talk a little bit about the movie you just saw. To close I will tell you about a meeting in Jerusalem.

The Europe you know is changing. You have probably seen the landmarks. The Eiffel Tower and Trafalgar Square and Rome's ancient buildings and maybe the canals of Amsterdam. They are still there. And they still look very much the same as they did a hundred years ago.

But in all of these cities, sometimes a few blocks away from your tourist destination, there is another world, a world very few visitors see – and one that does not appear in your tourist guidebook. It is the world of the parallel society created by Muslim mass-migration. All throughout Europe a new reality is rising: entire Muslim neighbourhoods where very few indigenous people reside or are even seen. And if they are, they might regret it. This goes for the police as well. It's the world of head scarves, where women walk around in figureless tents, with baby strollers and a group of children. Their husbands, or slaveholders if you prefer, walk three steps ahead. With mosques on many street corner. The shops have signs you and I cannot read. You will be hard-pressed to find any economic activity. These are Muslim ghettos controlled by religious fanatics. These are Muslim neighbourhoods, and they are mushrooming in every city across Europe. These are the building-blocks for territorial control of increasingly larger portions of Europe, street by street, neighbourhood by neighbourhood, city by city.

There are now thousands of mosques throughout Europe. With larger congregations than there are in churches. And in every European city there are plans to build super-mosques that will dwarf every church in the region. Clearly, the signal is: we rule.

Many European cities are already one-quarter Muslim: just take Amsterdam, Marseille and Malmo in Sweden. In many cities the majority of the under-18 population is Muslim. Paris is now surrounded by a ring of Muslim neighbourhoods. Mohammed is the most popular name among boys in many cities. In some elementary schools in Amsterdam the farm can no longer be mentioned, because that would also mean mentioning the pig, and that would be an insult to Muslims. Many state schools in Belgium and Denmark only serve halal food to all pupils. In once-tolerant Amsterdam gays are beaten up almost exclusively by Muslims. Non-Muslim women routinely hear "whore, whore". Satellite dishes are not pointed to local TV stations, but to stations in the country of origin. In France school teachers are advised to avoid authors deemed offensive to Muslims, including Voltaire and Diderot; the same is increasingly true of Darwin. The history of the Holocaust can in many cases no longer be taught because of Muslim sensitivity. In England sharia courts are now officially part of the British legal system. Many neighbourhoods in France are no-go areas for women without head scarves. Last week a man almost died after being beaten up by Muslims in Brussels, because he was drinking during the Ramadan. Jews are fleeing France in record numbers, on the run for the worst wave of anti-Semitism since World War II. French is now commonly spoken on the streets of Tel Aviv and Netanya, Israel. I could go on forever with stories like this. Stories about Islamization.

A total of fifty-four million Muslims now live in Europe. San Diego University recently calculated that a staggering 25 percent of the population in Europe will be Muslim just 12 years from now. Bernhard Lewis has predicted a Muslim majority by the end of this century.

Now these are just numbers. And the numbers would not be threatening if the Muslim-immigrants had a strong desire to assimilate. But there are few signs of that. The Pew Research Center reported that half of French Muslims see their loyalty to Islam as greater than their loyalty to France. One-third of French Muslims do not object to suicide attacks. The British Centre for Social Cohesion reported that one-third of British Muslim students are in favour of a worldwide caliphate. A Dutch study reported that half of Dutch Muslims admit they "understand" the 9/11 attacks.

Muslims demand what they call 'respect'. And this is how we give them respect. Our elites are willing to give in. To give up. In my own country we have gone from calls by one cabinet member to turn Muslim holidays into official state holidays, to statements by another cabinet member, that Islam is part of Dutch culture, to an affirmation by the Christian-Democrati c attorney general that he is willing to accept sharia in the Netherlands if there is a Muslim majority. We have cabinet members with passports from Morocco and Turkey.

Muslim demands are supported by unlawful behaviour, ranging from petty crimes and random violence, for example against ambulance workers and bus drivers, to small-scale riots. Paris has seen its uprising in the low-income suburbs, the banlieus. Some prefer to see these as isolated incidents, but I call it a Muslim intifada. I call the perpetrators "settlers". Because that is what they are. They do not come to integrate into our societies, they come to integrate our society into their Dar-al-Islam. Therefore, they are settlers.

Much of this street violence I mentioned is directed exclusively against non-Muslims, forcing many native people to leave their neighbourhoods, their cities, their countries.

Politicians shy away from taking a stand against this creeping sharia. They believe in the equality of all cultures. Moreover, on a mundane level, Muslims are now a swing vote not to be ignored.

Our many problems with Islam cannot be explained by poverty, repression or the European colonial past, as the Left claims. Nor does it have anything to do with Palestinians or American troops in Iraq. The problem is Islam itself.

Allow me to give you a brief Islam 101. The first thing you need to know about Islam is the importance of the book of the Quran. The Quran is Allah's personal word, revealed by an angel to Mohammed, the prophet. This is where the trouble starts. Every word in the Quran is Allah's word and therefore not open to discussion or interpretation. It is valid for every Muslim and for all times. Therefore, there is no such a thing as moderate Islam. Sure, there are a lot of moderate Muslims. But a moderate Islam is non-existent.

The Quran calls for hatred, violence, submission, murder, and terrorism. The Quran calls for Muslims to kill non-Muslims, to terrorize non-Muslims and to fulfil their duty to wage war: violent jihad. Jihad is a duty for every Muslim, Islam is to rule the world – by the sword. The Quran is clearly anti-Semitic, describing Jews as monkeys and pigs.

The second thing you need to know is the importance of Mohammed the prophet. His behaviour is an example to all Muslims and cannot be criticized. Now, if Mohammed had been a man of peace, let us say like Ghandi and Mother Theresa wrapped in one, there would be no problem. But Mohammed was a warlord, a mass murderer, a pedophile, and had several marriages – at the same time. Islamic tradition tells us how he fought in battles, how he had his enemies murdered and even had prisoners of war executed. Mohammed himself slaughtered the Jewish tribe of Banu Qurayza. He advised on matters of slavery, but never advised to liberate slaves. Islam has no other morality than the advancement of Islam. If it is good for Islam, it is good. If it is bad for Islam, it is bad. There is no gray area or other side.

Quran as Allah's own word and Mohammed as the perfect man are the two most important facets of Islam. Let no one fool you about Islam being a religion. Sure, it has a god, and a here-after, and 72 virgins. But in its essence Islam is a political ideology. It is a system that lays down detailed rules for society and the life of every person. Islam wants to dictate every aspect of life. Islam means 'submission'. Islam is not compatible with freedom and democracy, because what it strives for is sharia. If you want to compare Islam to anything, compare it to communism or national-socialism, these are all totalitarian ideologies.

This is what you need to know about Islam, in order to understand what is going on in Europe. For millions of Muslims the Quran and the live of Mohammed are not 14 centuries old, but are an everyday reality, an ideal, that guide every aspect of their lives. Now you know why Winston Churchill called Islam "the most retrograde force in the world", and why he compared Mein Kampf to the Quran.

Which brings me to my movie, Fitna.

I am a lawmaker, and not a movie maker. But I felt I had the moral duty to educate about Islam. The duty to make clear that the Quran stands at the heart of what some people call terrorism but is in reality jihad. I wanted to show that the problems of Islam are at the core of Islam, and do not belong to its fringes.

Now, from the day the plan for my movie was made public, it caused quite a stir, in the Netherlands and throughout Europe. First, there was a political storm, with government leaders, across the continent in sheer panic. The Netherlands was put under a heightened terror alert, because of possible attacks or a revolt by our Muslim population. The Dutch branch of the Islamic organisation Hizb ut-Tahrir declared that the Netherlands was due for an attack. Internationally, there was a series of incidents. The Taliban threatened to organize additional attacks against Dutch troops in Afghanistan, and a website linked to Al Qaeda published the message that I ought to be killed, while various muftis in the Middle East stated that I would be responsible for all the bloodshed after the screening of the movie. In Afghanistan and Pakistan the Dutch flag was burned on several occasions. Dolls representing me were also burned. The Indonesian President announced that I will never be admitted into Indonesia again, while the UN Secretary General and the European Union issued cowardly statements in the same vein as those made by the Dutch Government. I could go on and on. It was an absolute disgrace, a sell-out.

A plethora of legal troubles also followed, and have not ended yet. Currently the state of Jordan is litigating against me. Only last week there were renewed security agency reports about a heightened terror alert for the Netherlands because of Fitna.

Now, I would like to say a few things about Israel. Because, very soon, we will get together in its capitol. The best way for a politician in Europe to loose votes is to say something positive about Israel. The public has wholeheartedly accepted the Palestinian narrative, and sees Israel as the aggressor. I, however, will continue to speak up for Israel. I see defending Israel as a matter of principle. I have lived in this country and visited it dozens of times. I support Israel. First, because it is the Jewish homeland after two thousand years of exile up to and including Auschwitz, second because it is a democracy, and third because Israel is our first line of defense.

Samuel Huntington writes it so aptly: "Islam has bloody borders". Israel is located precisely on that border. This tiny country is situated on the fault line of jihad, frustrating Islam's territorial advance. Israel is facing the front lines of jihad, like Kashmir, Kosovo, the Philippines, Southern Thailand, Darfur in Sudan, Lebanon, and Aceh in Indonesia. Israel is simply in the way. The same way West-Berlin was during the Cold War.

The war against Israel is not a war against Israel. It is a war against the West. It is jihad. Israel is simply receiving the blows that are meant for all of us. If there would have been no Israel, Islamic imperialism would have found other venues to release its energy and its desire for conquest. Thanks to Israeli parents who send their children to the army and lay awake at night, parents in Europe and America can sleep well and dream, unaware of the dangers looming.

Many in Europe argue in favor of abandoning Israel in order to address the grievances of our Muslim minorities. But if Israel were, God forbid, to go down, it would not bring any solace to the West. It would not mean our Muslim minorities would all of a sudden change their behavior, and accept our values. On the contrary, the end of Israel would give enormous encouragement to the forces of Islam. They would, and rightly so, see the demise of Israel as proof that the West is weak, and doomed. The end of Israel would not mean the end of our problems with Islam, but only the beginning. It would mean the start of the final battle for world domination. If they can get Israel, they can get everything. Therefore, it is not that the West has a stake in Israel. It is Israel.

It is very difficult to be an optimist in the face of the growing Islamization of Europe. All the tides are against us. On all fronts we are losing. Demographically the momentum is with Islam. Muslim immigration is even a source of pride within ruling liberal parties. Academia, the arts, the media, trade unions, the churches, the business world, the entire political establishment have all converted to the suicidal theory of multiculturalism. So-called journalists volunteer to label any and all critics of Islamization as a 'right-wing extremists' or 'racists'. The entire establishment has sided with our enemy. Leftists, liberals and Christian-Democrats are now all in bed with Islam.

This is the most painful thing to see: the betrayal by our elites. At this moment in Europe's history, our elites are supposed to lead us. To stand up for centuries of civilization. To defend our heritage. To honour our eternal Judeo-Christian values that made Europe what it is today. But there are very few signs of hope to be seen at the governmental level. Sarkozy, Merkel, Brown, Berlusconi; in private, they probably know how grave the situation is. But when the little red light goes on, they stare into the camera and tell us that Islam is a religion of peace, and we should all try to get along nicely and sing Kumbaya. They willingly participate in, what President Reagan so aptly called: "the betrayal of our past, the squandering of our freedom."

If there is hope in Europe, it comes from the people, not from the elites. Change can only come from a grass-roots level. It has to come from the citizens themselves. Yet these patriots will have to take on the entire political, legal and media establishment.

Over the past years there have been some small, but encouraging, signs of a rebirth of the original European spirit. Maybe the elites turn their backs on freedom, the public does not. In my country, the Netherlands, 60 percent of the population now sees the mass immigration of Muslims as the number one policy mistake since World War II. And another 60 percent sees Islam as the biggest threat to our national identity. I don't think the public opinion in Holland is very different from other European countries.

Patriotic parties that oppose jihad are growing, against all odds. My own party debuted two years ago, with five percent of the vote. Now it stands at ten percent in the polls. The same is true of all smililary-minded parties in Europe. They are fighting the liberal establishment, and are gaining footholds on the political arena, one voter at the time.

Now, for the first time, these patriotic parties will come together and exchange experiences. It may be the start of something big. Something that might change the map of Europe for decades to come. It might also be Europe's last chance.

This December a conference will take place in Jerusalem. Thanks to Professor Aryeh Eldad, a member of Knesset, we will be able to watch Fitna in the Knesset building and discuss the jihad. We are organizing this event in Israel to emphasize the fact that we are all in the same boat together, and that Israel is part of our common heritage. Those attending will be a select audience. No racist organizations will be allowed. And we will only admit parties that are solidly democratic.

This conference will be the start of an Alliance of European patriots. This Alliance will serve as the backbone for all organizations and political parties that oppose jihad and Islamization. For this Alliance I seek your support.

This endeavor may be crucial to America and to the West. America may hold fast to the dream that, thanks tot its location, it is safe from jihad and shaira. But seven years ago to the day, there was still smoke rising from ground zero, following the attacks that forever shattered that dream. Yet there is a danger even greater danger than terrorist attacks, the scenario of America as the last man standing. The lights may go out in Europe faster than you can imagine. An Islamic Europe means a Europe without freedom and democracy, an economic wasteland, an intellectual nightmare, and a loss of military might for America - as its allies will turn into enemies, enemies with atomic bombs. With an Islamic Europe, it would be up to America alone to preserve the heritage of Rome, Athens and Jerusalem.

Dear friends, liberty is the most precious of gifts. My generation never had to fight for this freedom, it was offered to us on a silver platter, by people who fought for it with their lives. All throughout Europe American cemeteries remind us of the young boys who never made it home, and whose memory we cherish. My generation does not own this freedom; we are merely its custodians. We can only hand over this hard won liberty to Europe's children in the same state in which it was offered to us. We cannot strike a deal with mullahs and imams. Future generations would never forgive us. We cannot squander our liberties. We simply do not have the right to do so.

This is not the first time our civilization is under threat. We have seen dangers before. We have been betrayed by our elites before. They have sided with our enemies before. And yet, then, freedom prevailed.

These are not times in which to take lessons from appeasement, capitulation, giving away, giving up or giving in. These are not times in which to draw lessons from Mr. Chamberlain. These are times calling us to draw lessons from Mr. Churchill and the words he spoke in 1942:

"Never give in, never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy".

tribute to Gandhiji on his death anniversary

A Tribute to Gandhiji

by S. Radhakrishnan

The greatest fact in the story of man on earth is not his material achievements, the empires he has built and broken, but the growth of his soul from age to age in its search for truth and goodness. Those who take part in the adventure of the soul secure an enduring place in the history of human culture. Time has discredited heroes as easily as it has forgotten everyone else; but the saints remain. The greatness of Gnadhiji is more in his holy living than in his heroic struggles, in his insistence on the creative power of the soul and its life-giving quality at a time when the destructive forces seem to be in the ascendant.

Timeline of Gandhi's Life

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhiji born in Porbander in Gujarat.


Gandhi leaves for Johanneburg for practicing law and is thrown out of a first class bogie because he is colored.


Mohandas K. Gandhi, 37, speaks at a mass meeting in the Empire Theater, Johannesburg on September 11 and launches a campaign of nonviolent resistance (satyagraha) to protest discrimination against Indians. The British Government had just invalidated the Indian Marriage.


Mohandas Gandhi in Transvaal, South Afrika leads 2,500 Indians into the in defiance of a law, they are violently arrested, Gandhi refuses to pay a fine, he is jailed, his supporters demonstrate. On November 25, and Natal police fire into the crowd, killing two, injuring 20.


Mohandas Gandhi returns to India at age 45 after 21 years of practicing law in South Africa where he organized a campaign of “passive resistance” to protest his mistreatment by whites for his defense of Asian immigrants. He attracts wide attention in India by conducting a fast --the first of 14 that he will stage as political demonstrations and that will inaugurate the idea of the political fasting.


A civil disobedience campaign against the British in India begins March 12. The All-India Trade Congress has empowered Gandhi to begin the demonstrations (see 1914). Called Mahatma for the past decade, Gandhi leads a 165 mile march to the Gujarat coast of the Arabian sea and produces salt by evaporation of sea water in violation of lawas a gesture of defiance against the British monopoly in salt production


Gandhi begins a "fast unto death" to protest the British government's treatment of India's lowest caste "untouchables" whom Gandhi calls harijans -- "God's children." Gandhi's campaign of civil disobedience has brought rioting and has landed him in prison, but he persists in his demands for social reform, he urges a new boycott of British goods, and after 6 days of fasting obtains a pact that improves the status of the "untouchables" (dalits)


India becomes free from 200 years of British Rule. A major victory for Gandhian principles and non-violence in general.


Gandhi is assassinated by Nathuram Godse,

Never Give Up

Never Give Up

One day I decided to quit... I quit my job, my relationship, my spirituality. .. I wanted to quit my life. I went to the woods to have one last talk with Lord Krishna.

"Lord Krishna", I said. "Can you give me one good reason not to quit"

His answer surprised me... "Look around", He said. "Do you see the fern and the bamboo"

"Yes", I replied.

"When I planted the fern and the bamboo seeds, I took very good care of them. I gave them light. I gave them water.

The fern quickly grew from the earth. Its brilliant green covered the floor. Yet nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo. In the second year, the Fern grew more vibrant and plentiful.

And again, nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo, he said.

"In year three, there was still nothing from the bamboo seed.

But I would not quit. In year four, again, there was nothing from the bamboo seed.

"I would not quit." He said.

Then, in the fifth year, a tiny sprout emerged from the earth.

Compared to the fern it was seemingly small and insignificant. ..But just 6 months later the bamboo rose to over 100 feet tall.

It had spent the five years growing roots. Those roots made it strong and gave it what it needed to survive.
"I would not give any of my creations a challenge it could not handle."

He said to me. "Did you know, my child, that all this time you have been struggling, you have actually been growing roots"

"I would not quit on the bamboo. I will never quit on you."

"Don't compare yourself to others." He said. "The bamboo had a different purpose than the fern. Yet they both make the forest beautiful."

"Your time will come", Lord Krishna said to me. "You will rise high"

"How high should I rise" I asked.

"How high will the bamboo rise" He asked in return.

"As high as it can" I replied.

"Yes." He said, "Give me glory by rising as high as you can."

I left the forest to bring back this story.

I hope these words can help you see that Lord Krishna will never give up on you.

Never Give up…!!


Everything is resting on Krishna's energy; therefore without Krishna's shelter nothing can exist. Krishna is the supreme ruler because everything belongs to Him and everything exists on His energy. Krishna, being situated in everyone's heart, is the supreme witness. The residences, countries or planets on which we live are also Krishna. Krishna is the ultimate goal of shelter, and therefore one should take shelter of Krishna either for protection or for annihilation of his distress. And whenever we have to take protection, we should know that our protection must be a living force. Krishna is the supreme living entity. And since Krishna is the source of our generation, or the supreme father, no one can be a better friend than Krishna, nor can anyone be a better well-wisher.

The highest goal of human civilization is to work hard under the guidance of the Lord and become completely dependent on Him. The highest achievement of perfect civilization is to work with valor but at the same time depend completely on the Lord.

Lakshmanrao Bhide Memorial Lecture
Chanakya to Chandrayaan: India’s global vision

By Ram Madhav

Chanakya insisted that wealth creation is crucial for establishing a welfare state. In the last several decades we have been able to progress economically well. Today India has more billionaires than any other country in Asia. But it also has three Nigeria’s in it; 30 crore people live below poverty line—earning less than a dollar a day. 40 per cent of world’s poor live in India.

Advent of 21st century has witnessed dramatic developments. Most important of them is the collapse of American hegemony which was very fondly cherished by the likes of Fukuyama when they predicted a ‘Uni-Polar World’ after the demise of the USSR. Far from becoming uni-polar, the world has increasingly become multi-polar. New power-centres have emerged that changed the face of the earth and also the long-standing perceptions.

One can say this is the concept of dharma put in a western context. Chankya’s Artha Shastra to Gandhiji’s Hind Swaraj (1909) talk precisely in the same language. In Hind Swaraj, Gandhiji takes to task forms of democracy found in Western countries which are often upheld as shining models to the rest of the world.

Chanakya and Chandrayaan are two significant signposts nearly 2,400 years apart between which flourished a great civilisation called Bharat or India. Chanakya was the epitome of the grand Indian vision of politics and economics, which he described in a single word Arth Shastra. His treatise by that name, which he set out to pen after retiring from the post of Maha Amaatya in the kingdom of Chandragupta Mourya, remains to this day a pioneering work on statecraft, polity and economy. It is not surprising that there are scholars working on Chanakya’s Arth Shastra in universities of USA, France, Germany and many more countries. What is really sad is the fact that it is hard to find any in our own universities.

Chandrayaan—the celestial journey set off on October 22 by our own satellite—represents India’s grand urge to conquer not just this world but the entire universe. In a historic event, the Indian space programme achieved a unique feat on November 14, 2008 with the placing of Indian tricolour on the Moon’s surface on Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru’s birthday. The Indian flag was painted on the sides of Moon Impact Probe (MIP), one of the 11 payloads of Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft, that successfully hit the lunar surface at 20:31 hrs (8:31 pm) IST on that day. This is the first Indian built object to reach the surface of the moon. The point of MIP’s impact was near the Moon’s South Polar Region. Our satellite has already reached about 200 km close to the Moon and soon its other equipment will be launched on to the surface of it. According to Dr Annadurai, the Project Director of Chandrayaan, we would be able to send our first manned mission to the Moon by 2020 CE.

Through the ages, the Moon, our closest celestial body has aroused curiosity in our mind much more than any other objects in the sky. This led to scientific study of the Moon, driven by the desire and quest for knowledge. This is also reflected in the ancient verse:

Roa lkse iz fpfdrks euh"kkA
Roa jft"B euq usf"k iUFkkeAA

(O Moon! We should be able to know you through our intellect. You enlighten us through the right path.)

Rigveda Part-1.91/1 (About 2000 years BC)

Several nations have attempted manned and unmanned missions to the Moon and claimed various victories; but it still remained a mystery that has the potential to open floodgates of knowledge about the universe and its creation. Today we also joined that group with our successful launching of the Chandrayaan.

Chanakya and Chandrayaan signify the vibrance and virility of our great civilisation. It has existed before Chanakya and it will continue to exist after Chandrayaan.

“If Sparta and Rome perished, what state can hope to endure forever?” declared Rousseau in utter disillusionment once. Yet our civilisation lived for millennia.

“Yunana Misra Roma….”—‘Greeks, Egyptians and Romans etc have all perished; yet, there is something in this soil that makes it eternal’—exclaimed Md. Iqbal in his famous poem Saare Jahaan se Acchha. That ‘something’ was described by Swami Vivekananda eloquently when he said: “Every nation has a destiny to fulfil, duty to perform and mission to accomplish.” We have a universal mission the accomplishment of which is the grand vision of our civilisation.

August 15, 1947 saw the dawn of India’s freedom. In a very significant message given on that day Sri Aurobindo spoke of his five dreams that in a nutshell present our grand global vision: “Indeed, on this day I can watch almost all the world movements which I hoped to see fulfilled in my life time, though then they looked like impracticable dreams, arriving at fruition or on their way to achievement.”

  • The first of these dreams was a revolutionary movement which would create a free and united India. India today is free but she has not achieved unity.... But by whatever means, in whatever way, the division must go; unity must and will be achieved, for it is necessary for the greatness of India’s future.

  • Another dream was for the resurgence and liberation of the peoples of Asia and her return to her great role in the progress of human civilisation. Asia has arisen; large parts are now quite free or are at this moment being liberated: its other still subject or partly subject parts are moving through whatever struggles towards freedom....

  • The third dream was a world-union forming the outer basis of a fairer, brighter and nobler life for all mankind.... A new spirit of oneness will take hold of the human race.

  • Another dream, the spiritual gift of India to the world has already begun. India’s spirituality is entering Europe and America in an ever-increasing measure....

  • The final dream was a step in evolution which would raise man to a higher and larger consciousness and begin the solution of the problems which have perplexed and vexed him since he first began to think and to dream of individual perfection and a perfect society.”

  • It is with this vision that this civilisation has survived for so many centuries weathering so many storms.

    In order for us to realise our vision it is necessary to understand what is happening in the world. Today, the world stands at a crossroads; it stands confused and directionless.

    About two decades ago when the Communist Soviet regime collapsed leading to the disintegration of Soviet Union utter panic and disbelief had taken over the thinking world.

    Soviet collapse, preceded or followed by the collapse of almost all the Communist regimes led some like Francis Fukuyama to proclaim in a victorious tone that it was the “end of history”. Fukuyama explained: “I argued that liberal democracy may constitute the end point of mankind’s ideological evolution and the final form of human government and as such constituted the end of history.”

    Fukuyama’s prediction that the end of Communism heralded ended of all conflict in the world was contested not only by the subsequent events, but scholars like Samuel Huntington as well. Conflict continued and finally it has engulfed the entire world after the collapse of twin towers on 11/9/2002 in New York.

    The central problem is not so much with the political theories, but with the core worldview itself. The Western worldview, whether it is Communism or Capitalism or even Islamism, requires ‘The Other’—an enemy—to perpetuate its existence. Without the ‘Other’ there is no identity for its existence. This was explained by Samuel Huntington as the “Clash of Civilisations”, which see each other as enemies.

    “It is my hypothesis that the fundamental source of conflict in this new world will not be primarily ideological or primarily economic. The great divisions among humankind and the dominating source of conflict will be cultural. Nation states will remain the most powerful actors in world affairs, but the principal conflicts of global politics will occur between nations and groups of different civilizations. The clash of civilizations will dominate global politics. The fault lines between civilizations will be the battle lines of the future.” The Clash of Civilizations? (Samuel P. Huntington, Foreign Affairs, Summer 1993)

    In 84 BC when Rome defeated its last serious enemy, Mithradates, Sulla asked: “Now that the universe offers us no more enemies, what may be the fate of the Republic?” A few decades after, the Roman Republic fell to Caesarism.

    “We are doing something really terrible to you—we are depriving you of an enemy”—Georgiy Arbatov, Advisor to Gorbochev to Americans in 1987.

    “Without the Cold War, what is the point of being an American?”— John Updike

    Advent of 21st century has witnessed dramatic developments. Most important of them is the collapse of American hegemony which was very fondly cherished by the likes of Fukuyama when they predicted a ‘Uni-Polar World’ after the demise of the USSR. Far from becoming uni-polar, the world has increasingly become multi-polar. New power-centres have emerged that changed the face of the earth and also the long-standing perceptions.

    Take for example the following facts:

    • World’s tallest building is in Taipei to be replaced shortly by Dubai;

    • Richest man is a Mexican;

    • Largest MNC is Chinese;

    • Biggest plane is built in Russia and Ukraine;

    • Leading refinery is in India;

    • Largest factories are in China;

    • Richest endowment fund is in UAE;

    • Number one casino in Macao;

    • Biggest movie industry in terms of tickets sold is Bollywood;

    • Till ten years ago America used to be on top in everything;

    • But no longer! Of the ten biggest malls only one is in America;

    • And the world’s biggest mall is in Beijing;

    “We are moving into post-American world”—explains Fareed Zakaria, Editor of the News Week, USA in his latest book The Post American World.

    This new emergence of power centres was described by Huntington as “Uni-Multipolarity” while the Chinese describe it as “Many powers—One super power”.

    Once a Communist country, China today emerged as the third economic super power.

    Father of modern China Deng Xiaoping said to have famously exhorted once that: “It doesn’t matter if it is a black cat or a white cat as long as it can catch mice it is a good cat”. What he meant was that let the facts not ideology guide China.

    In 1978 China produced 200 air conditioners. In 2005 it has made 48 million; it exports in one day today what it had done in the whole of 1978.

    Ruthless pragmatism guides that country today. Many Chinese foreign policy analysts call themselves “Christian Confucians”. For the grand Olympics opening ceremony it chose Steven Spielberg, an American to design the entire event. An India or a Japan can’t imagine that in their country.

    A great political awakening is seen all over the world. Upsurge of nationalism is conspicuous everywhere. A scramble for resources has already begun. A classic example is the scramble for oil and natural gas. What the OPEC countries tried to do last year is fresh in our minds. Recently Russia suspended gas supply to Europe for a few days creating near-collapse of several economies.

    China is another major rising power that has the potential to upset many. “Let China sleep, for when China wakes, she will shake the world”— warned Napoleon long ago.

    Today China’s area of influence is tremendously increasing. In the entire African continent China has emerged as an unquestioned king. In November 2006 President Hu Jintao held a summit on Sino-African relations. All 48 countries that have diplomatic ties with China attended. Most of them were represented by no less than Presidents and Prime Ministers. It was the largest African summit ever held outside Africa.

    Today, China has occupied economic, political and military space in Africa that once belonged to Britain, France or USA. “China is an inspiration for us” declared the Prime Minister of Ethiopia Meles Zenavi. China buys platinum and iron ore from Zimbabwe and sells weapons and radio-jammers. China is Mugabe’s important supporter on the UN Security Council.

    In fact China is following a strategic path that emerges from the oldest confusion thinker Sun Zi, who argued that ‘every battle is won or lost before it is ever fought’. It is trying to manipulate a situation where the outcome is always and inevitably in favour of it.

    These growing power centres solely guided by national interests are making multilateral agencies like the United Nations increasingly irrelevant. Their irrelevance can be partly attributed to their archaic structure as well. The 2nd and 3rd largest economies— Japan and Germany—are not members of the Security Council. Largest democracy India too has no membership. No Latin American or African country too is a member.

    The IMF is always headed by a European and the World Bank by an American. Will forces of global growth turn into forces of global disorder and disintegration?

    It is here that India has a role to play. We can take a leaf or two out of the wisdom of great Indian scholars including Chanakya and Gandhiji to evolve a new global order.

    Today, the world comes closer to what these wise men have said before. Having realised that democracy as it is offered today doesn’t serve containing conflicts in the world the Western thinkers started talking about new concepts like ‘Constitutional Liberalism’.

    In fact democracy has always remained a fascinating subject for discussion for centuries. It was described as the second best form of government, the first being yet to be found.

    “Democracy is a fantastically over-hyped idea. Far from being a guarantor of freedom, or even the same as freedom, as many young Americans are taught, democracy can be freedom’s worst enemy. Democracy is flourishing; liberty is not” bemoans Fareed Zakaria.

    One can say this is the concept of dharma put in a western context. Chankya’s Artha Shastra to Gandhiji’s Hind Swaraj (1909) talk precisely in the same language. In Hind Swaraj, Gandhiji takes to task forms of democracy found in Western countries which are often upheld as shining models to the rest of the world.

    “This civilisation takes note neither of morality [niti] nor of religion [dharma]. . .

    [It] seeks to increase bodily comforts, and it fails miserably even in doing so. This civilisation is irreligion [adharma], and it has taken such a hold on the people in Europe that those who are in its appear to be half mad... They keep up their energy by intoxication.”

    “I do not regard England, or for that matter America, as free countries. They are free after their own fashion: free to hold in bondage the colored races of the earth.... According to my own interpretation of that freedom, I am constrained to say: they are strangers to that freedom which their [own] poets and teachers have described”.

    Plato talked of ‘Philosopher Kings’. Chanakya wanted the rulers to be ‘wise, disciplined by learning’. “Spiritual development is paramount for internal strength and character. Material pleasures and comforts come second” he insisted.

    In fact it was Chanakya who propounded a democratic model in 300 BCE. “King has no individuality of his own. He is for the people and of the people.” In essence we are the repositories of a great wisdom handed down to us from the times of the Vedas.

    But again the mute question is: Are we qualified to preach it to the world?

    Chanakya insisted that wealth creation is crucial for establishing a welfare state. In the last several decades we have been able to progress economically well. Today India has more billionaires than any other country in Asia. But it also has three Nigeria’s in it; 30 crore people live below poverty line—earning less than a dollar a day. 40 per cent of world’s poor live in India. In 1960 India’s per capita GDP was higher than China’s and 70 per cent that of South Korea’s; today it is less than two-fifths of China’s. South Korea is twenty times larger. In the UN Human Development Index India ranks 128 out of 177 countries—behind Syria, Sri Lanka, Vietnam and even Dominican Republic. Female literacy rate in India is below 50 per cent.

    It is perhaps the biggest paradox of our times—a great civilisation with abundant wisdom and a society eager, confident and ready to take on the world; yet a system so inefficient and corrupt that it cripples all creativity. Whatever India has achieved is in spite of the Government, not because of it.

    Unfortunately for India, its own wisdom was never found to be acceptable. We followed the flawed discourses of the West, copying and creating hybrid versions of their models and presuming that we are on the right course. We ignored the wise caution our elders had to offer to us.

    In a letter written to Nehru in 1945 Gandhiji, picking up Nehru’s suggestion regarding the importance of human and social development, had fully agreed that it was crucial to “bring about man’s highest intellectual, economic, political and moral development,” that is, the “flourishing” of all human abilities. The basic issue was how to accomplish this goal. For Gandhiji this was impossible without thorough attention to dharma and without social engagement and responsibility. Echoing Aristotle and countering the modern Western focus on self-centered individualism he wrote: “Man is not born to live in isolation but is essentially a social animal independent and interdependent. No one can or should ride on another’s back.”

    Rishi Aurobindo was much more prophetic and forthright in his advice two years after Independence.

    “...It would be a tragic irony of fate if India were to throw away her spiritual heritage at the very moment when in the rest of the world more and more are turning towards her for spiritual help and a saving Light. This must not and will surely not happen; but it cannot be said that the danger is not there. There are indeed other numerous and difficult problems that face this country or will very soon face it. No doubt we will win through, but we must not disguise from ourselves the fact that after these long years of subjection and its cramping and impairing effects a great inner as well as outer liberation and change, a vast inner and outer progress is needed if we are to fulfil India’s true destiny.”

============ ========= ========= ===
(Spiritual Sayings )

Everything happens according to the will of God.
Have faith in this.
Then every place,every moment , every event of
your life begins to feel like heaven.
And your are convinced that
what is happening is meant for you

If you want to embark on the great adventure
of putting on a new life, all you have to do is
ask yourself a question…. "Am I living my life
according to the will of God?"
As long as God's will is very present in your life,
then everything is alright.

One who is happy with whatever clothing he is given,
whatever food he is fed,
and whatever resting place he is offered,
shines like an emperor.

You have to have a great heart
to see with this kind of vision.
How do you get such a heart?
You recognise your own worth,
You know what you really are,
You know what you contain
within yourself.

The world is as you see it.
You have your own glasses with your own colours
and prescriptions,
and you perceive the world thorough glasses
That's why the world appears to you as it does
However your mind is,
however your heart is
however your attitude is
that's how you see the world.
Therefore wear good glasses
with the right prescription.

A crow once flew into the sky with a piece of food in
Twenty crows flew after him, greedy for his dinner.The crow
let the piece of food drop, and immediately his pursuers
turned and flew after the morsel.
Said the crow…"I have lost the food and gained
this peaceful sky"…..

Don't worry about what has already happened.
Concentrate on what is in the present.
Turn your heart towards God
And merge it in Him.

Nothing in this world is our enemy.
Everything is our friend---
Whether it's pain or joy,
misery or delight….
if we learn how to look at it.
For this we do the practices,
we perform austerities, we contemplate
what this world really is.
Through grace all this is possible.

Offer yourself entirely to the Lord.
giving up the pride of your own effort.
The Lord will become yours in His fullness.
This is the essence of all teachings
and answers of all answers.

It is only because of our understanding
that we are unable to accept what happens to us.
We blame others for our sorrow, saying:
"He did this to me;… He did that to me…"
But the fact is we ourselves are
the creators of joys and sorrows.

We reap the fruit of our own actions,no one else's.
An ignorant person suffers them
weeping and grumbling.
while a wise person, with the eye of knowledge,
sees the world as a divine play,
as the light of his own soul and enjoys it
while still laughing happily

Watch yourself….when you are troubled,
do self inquiry….ask yourself..
"Why do I feel so troubled?"
you can not put it aside, saying..
" It will just go away."
Nothing ever just goes away.
If you think .. it will goaway,..
it will be added to your karma box.
No one is going to empty that box but you.
It will only get fuller and fuller.

Facing the consequences of past karmas…
is not something to dread.
With right understanding,
with right knowledge
you actually look forward
to wiping the slate clean.

When you see something,
instead of judging it at its face value,…energise it
with the understanding of God !
Then even from a very plain,
simple incident .. you learn a great deal
because you have wisdom
and you are happy with yourself.

Whether you attain something
or you do not attain it
whether it is great or small,
it should always be enjoyed….. without desire
and with a contented mind

In `samadhana' ..the state of constant concentration
on the God Almighty…
you are able to experience everything
as a blessing..
Your mind becomes so positive
that you are able to accept everything
as a gift from God.

Samadhana is self surrender and contentment with what you have
chosen to pursue your dharma..
your only desire is to pursue
the greratest….! the highest…!
When a seeker is armed
with this quality..
he has a great ally ..
in the quest for the truth.

It is Shakti.. the divine power of consciousness,
who becomes the earth and
produces the valleys and plants and trees. So after you receive
Shaktipat,.. whatever happens_,
whether it is big or small__,
consider it to be a play of Shakti.

The appearance of the world
depends on a person's vision.
For God, only His world of bliss exists.
If you practise God's viewpoint
and attain your blissful inner sight,
then no matter where you go,
there will nothing but bliss and joy.

Change your vision …
Go deeper and deeper
to where the state…
of extraordinary ecstasy awaits you.
When you reach that state,
you will become it.
You will know: " I am That".

The truth of the matter is,
there is only….
the radience of God in the world,
and everyone is the image of God

Remember… God loves you
And will fulfill all your needs.
He will give you everything
when the time is right.

World Tour

Charles Schultz Philosophy

Charles Schultz Philosophy


The following is the philosophy of Charles Schultz, the creator of the "Peanuts" comic strip. You don't have to actually answer the questions. Just read the e-mail straight through, and you'll get the point.

1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.

2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.

3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America Contest.

4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.

5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.

6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners.


How did you do?

The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. They are not second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

Here's another quiz. See how you do on this one:

1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.

2.. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.

3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.

4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.

5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.



The lesson: The people who make a difference in your life are NOT the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They are the ones who care.


Share this with those who have made a difference in your life.

I just did!

"Don't worry about the world coming to an end today.
It's already tomorrow in Australia."
(Charles Schultz)

Your words, your dreams, and your thoughts have

Your words, your dreams, and your thoughts have
power to create conditions in your life.

What you speak about, you can bring about.
If you keep saying you can't stand your job,
you might lose your job.

If you keep saying you can't stand your body,
your body can become sick.

If you keep saying you can't stand your car,
your car could be stolen or just stop operating.

If you keep saying you're broke, guess what?
You'll always be broke.

If you keep saying you can't trust people,
you'll always have someone in your life to hurt
and betray you.

If you keep saying you can't find a job,
you will remain unemployed.

If you keep saying you can't find someone
to love you or believe in you,
you will attract more experiences to confirm
your beliefs.

If you keep talking about a divorce or breaking up
then you might just end up with it.

Turn your thoughts and conversations around
to be more positive and power packed with
faith, hope, love and action.

Don't be afraid to believe that you can have
what you want and deserve.

Watch your Thoughts, they become words.
Watch your words, they become actions.
Watch your actions, they become habits.
Watch your Habits, they become character.
Watch your Character, it becomes your Destiny.

The minute you settle for less than you deserve,
you get even less than you settle for.

Thought I would share this with you.
"In the search for me, I discovered truth.
In the search for truth, I discovered love.
In the search for love, I discovered GOD.
And in God, I have found Everything.

Be Blessed & BLESS Others - SHARE THIS!

Watch how your circumstances and situations
begin to change when you change the way you speak.

"Life is like melted butter. . .once things
cool down, it can be reshaped!"

Fwd: wake up call

Are Hindus Cowards?

June 5, 2006

1. There are nearly 52Jihadicountries. Show oneJihadicountry which provides Haj subsidy.
2. Show oneJihadicountry where Hindus are extended the special rights that Muslims are accorded in India?
3. Show oneJihadicountry which has a Non-Muslim as its President or Prime Minister.

4. Show one country where the 82% majority craves for the indulgence of the 18% minority.
5. Show one Mullah or Maulvi who has declared a `fatwa' against terrorists.
Hindu-majority Maharashtra, Bihar, Kerala, Pondicherry, etc. have in
the past elected Muslims as CMs; Can you ever imagine a Hindu becoming
the CM of Muslim- majority J&K or Christian-dominated
7. Today Hindus are 85%. If Hindus are
intolerant, how come Masjids and Madrassas are thriving? How come
Muslims are offering Namaz on the road? How come Muslims are
proclaiming 5 times a day on loudspeakers that there is no God except
8. When Hindus gave to Muslims 30% of Bharat for a song,
why should Hindus now beg for their sacred places at Ayodhya, Mathura
and Kashi?
9. Why temple funds are spent for the welfare of
Muslims and Christians, when they are free to spend their money in any
way they like?
10. When uniform is made compulsory for school children, why there is no Uniform Civil Code for citizens?
11. In what way, J&K is different from Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu or Uttar Pradesh, to have Article 370?

12. Why Gandhiji supported Khilafat movement (nothing to do with our freedom movement) and what in turn he got?
Why Gandhiji objected to the decision of the cabinet and insisted that
Somnath Temple should be reconstructed out of public funds, not
government funds, when in January 1948 he pressurised Nehru and Patel
to carry on renovation of the mosques of Delhi at government expenses?
If Muslims & Christians are minorities in Maharashtra, UP, Bihar,
etc., are Hindus not minorities in J&K, Mizoram, Nagaland,
Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, etc?. Why are Hindus denied minority
rights in these States?
15. Do you admit that Hindus do have
problems that need to be recognized. Or do you think that those who
call themselves Hindus are themselves the problem?
16. Why post-Godhra is blown out of proportion, when no- one talks of the ethnic cleansing of 4 lakh Hindus from Kashmir?
In 1947, when India was partitioned, the Hindu population in Pakistan
was about 24%. Today it is not even 1%. In 1947, the Hindu population
in East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) was 30%. Today it is about 7%. What
happened to the missing Hindus? Do Hindus have human rights?
In contrast, in India,Jihadipopulation has gone up from 10.4% in 1951
to about 14% today; whereas Hindu population has come down from 87.2%
in 1951 to 81.5% in 2001. Does any politician have the guts to ask
Muslims to go for family planning?
19. Do you consider that -
Sanskrit is communal and Urdu is secular, Mandir is communal and Masjid
is secular, Sadhu is communal and Imam is secular, BJP is communal
andJihadiLeague is secular, Dr. Praveen Thogadiya is anti-national and
Bhukari is national, Vande Matharam is communal and Allah-O-Akbar is
secular, Shriman is communal and Mian is secular, Hinduism is communal
and Islam is secular, Hindutva is communal and Jihadism is secular, and
at last, Bharat is communal and Italy is secular?
20. When Christian andJihadischools can teach Bible and Quran, why Hindus cannot teach Gita or Ramayan?
Abdul Rehman Antuley was made a trustee of the famous Siddhi Vinayak
Temple in Prabhadevi, Mumbai. Can a Hindu - say Mulayam or Laloo - ever
become a trustee of a Masjid or Madrassa?
22. Dr. Praveenbhai
Thogadiya has been arrested many times on flimsy grounds. Has the Shahi
Imam of Jama Masjid, Delhi, Ahmed Bukhari been arrested for claiming to
be an ISI agent and advocating partition of Bharat?
23. When Haj pilgrims are given subsidy, why Hindu pilgrims to Amarnath, Sabarimalai & Kailash Mansarover are taxed?
In 2003-2004 - AJihadiPresident, a Hindu Prime Minister and a Christian
Defence Minister, running the affairs of the country, with a unity of
purpose. Can this happen any where except in a Hindu Nation - Bharat?
In Kerala, MLAs, MPs & Ministers take oath in the name of Allah and
Infant Jesus, which is against the Constitution. Can a Hindu take oath
in the name of Ram or Krishna?
26. Arabic language is promoted in India at Govt. expenses. but not Sanskrit? Is Arabic more national than Sanskrit?

27. IMTD act in Assam gives legal rights to Bangladeshi Muslims to
settle and become Indian citizen, whereas Indians cannot settle in
Jammu & Kashmir. Why this double standard?
28. J&K with
about 1 crore population has been provided with aid worth Rs.24,000
crores, i.e. Rs.24,000/- per head, whereas in other states the per head
aid is less than 5% of this amount. Is this not a reward for anti-
29. If painting is un-Islamic, why there is no Fatwa
issued against MF Hussain? If he still persists with painting, is he
not doing an un-Islamic act?
30. If music, singing and dancing are
un-Islamic (because Islam is a serious religion), why no Fatwa is
issued against the many Khans in the cinefield. What will they give up
- Islam or Acting?
31. Do you think that India will remain secular and democratic if Muslims become majority?
When Deepavali & Janmashtami are celebrated at White House, House
of Commons, Australian Parliament, etc. why are they not celebrated in
Indian parliament? Are we more secular than USA, UK & Australia?

33. If the communal riots is due to RSS, VHP, Bajrang Dal, etc. why
there are riots in Bangladesh, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Turkey,
Afghanistan, Indonesia, Chechhnya, China, Russia, UK, France, Spain,
Cyprus, etc. - where there is no RSS/VHP.
34. If Islam is a religion of peace, why Quran-reading and Gun-wielding is taught in tandem?
How do you explain theJihadipsyche : Enjoying the freedom in a
democratic country like India, USA, UK, France, etc. and still trying
to make it an Islamic nation, where they lose all freedom.
36. A
former President, two former PMs, Sadhus and Sants have demonstrated
against the arrest of Kanchi Shankaracharya, but the media says there
is absolutely no protest. Do you think violence is the only yardstick
to measure people's agony?
37. When Quran does not believe in
negotiation (it believes only in defeating Kafirs in a war), do you
think that the Ayodhya problem will be solved by negotiation?
38. Do you trust that Islam and Christianity believe in Sarva Dharma Samabhav? If yes, why do they believe in conversion.
Don't you believe that Islam and Christianity are political ideologies,
out to grab nations. They - through their Mullahs and Fathers - achieve
what Army, Navy and Air Force cannot, by converting locals and
destroying their culture.
40. Ishwar Allah tere naam - Can you show me oneJihadiwho has agreed to this?
Don't you think that `Secular Muslim' is a misnomer? A person can
either be Secular or a Muslim, and not both? AJihadi(who believes in
the only God, Allah) cannot be secular (believing in many Gods).
UN Charter says that minority means less than 10% of the population.
How can Muslims, who are nearly 14% in India be called a minority?
43. Do you believe that Communists love our country, when they refuse to admit that China was the aggressor in 1962?
Do you agree with the thesis of Communists that India is a State of
different nations, like the former USSR, (and not a Nation of different
states) and therefore is bound to break up?
45. How come
aJihadifamily peacefully lives in a predominantly Hindu locality,
whereas a Hindu family is not able to do so in aJihadilocality?
46. Why Hindu dominated Bharat is secular for ages andJihadidominated countries are only Islamic with no powers to minorities?
Why Christian Missionaries do not go to Muslim- dominated areas and
start their social service there? Is it because they will not get
sufficient return to their `investment'?
48. Are you aware that
India is the only country which openly invites infiltrators from
Bangladesh. Bihar, UP and West Bengal Govts. provide them with
immediate ration cards and make them voters.
49. Riots take place mostly after the Friday prayers (e.g. Marad, Kerala). Is it not because of the fiery sermons of the Imams?
All Hindu-majority regions are peaceful. But all Hindu- minority
regions have become problematic - like J&K, North Eastern parts,
etc. Can you explain why?
51. A MLA, C.P. Shaji, said in Kerala
Assembly that "the hands that touches even a syllable of the Shariat
will be chopped off then and there" (Mathrubhumi, July 3, 1985). Do you
concur with this?
52. Do you agree that the policies of all
political parties are contradictory to the aim of uniting all sections
of the people by a stream of thought?
53. Are you aware that
illegalJihadiimmigrants have become a deciding factor in the election
of nearly 25 Lok Sabha and 120 MLA seats in India? - And they are
voting for a particular party lump sum - Congress, RJD, SP, ML or
Communists - whichever is likely to form the Govt.?
54. Are you
aware that according to KPS Gill some of the NGOs or even media
organisations were actually front offices for terrorist groups? He says
there is a nexus between some of the terrorist outfits parading as NGOs
and human rights group.
55. Are you aware that the so-called
secular Maulana Wahiduddin, when asked to pray for the Indian soldiers
fighting at Kargil, refused, under the pretext that he cannot pray for
people who are fighting the Muslims? (Sonia and Priyanka attended his
funeral later).
56. A Pakistani becomes Indian when he marries
aJihadigirl from J&K. But when the same girl marries a Hindu from
any part of India, he does not become a J&K citizen, but on the
contrary, she loses her J&K citizenship. What kind of law is this?
In the Ayodhya case, the Supreme Court questioned the locus standi of
Vishwa Hindu Parishad. But the SC did not question the locus standi of
the Babri Masjid Action Committee or the All IndiaJihadiPersonal Law
Board. Is this not double standard on the part of SC?
58. In the
Ayodhya dispute, you say that Hindus must abide by law. Do you know how
many times the constitution has been amended to overturn verdicts of
the High Courts and Supreme Court? - Shah Bano, unseating of Indira
Gandhi, etc.
59. When you are asking for the resignation of CMs
like Narendra Modi, Uma Bharti, etc. on trivial grounds, why are you
not demanding the resignation of the CM of J&K, where thousands of
security personnel have been killed by terrorists? - where nearly 4
lakhs Hindus have been ethnic cleansed.
60. The UP govt.
confessed that it cannot abide by Supreme Court judgement of 1986 on
the Varanasi burial ground dispute between Sunni and Shia Muslims. The
Karnataka Govt. refused to abide by the SC's order on the Cauvery water
dispute. Is this respecting court judgement?
61. When one Graham
Staines is killed, the English press goes overboard in condemning his
killers. But when 58 Hindus, including 30 women and children, were
burnt aline in Sabarmati Express, they kept silent. The victims are
depicted as the villain. Is this responsible journalism?
Farooq Abdullah, former CM of J&K who has married a Christian,
rejoiced at the marriage of his son Umar with a Hindu girl. But when
his daughter married a Hindu boy, he disowned her. Is he the icon of
63. Have you ever visited aJihadighetto? If not please
make it a point to have a Darshan Yatra of place like Mumbra (near
Mumbai) or Mallapuram in Kerala. If you are a real secularist, you will
really `feel good'.
64. When Islam and Secularism/democracy have nothing in common, why Hindus are made to watch this ugly dance in their stupor?
According to law, human organs cannot be an election symbol of any
party. Then how come `Hand' symbol is allotted to Congress. Is it not
against the law?
66. Delhi Imam Syed Bhukari declared that Taliban
is the ideal for all Muslims and Osama Bin Laden is the hero? Do you
consider him a secular icon?
67. Delhi Imam Syed Bhukari is rearing
a Black Buck in his courtyard, which is against law. The Delhi police
team which went there to arrest him, came back calmly. Is he above law?

68. If Muslims do not want common civil code, will they clamour for
the Quaranic code of criminal justice? - eye for eye, leg for leg, hand
for hand, etc.
69. In J&K, about 2 lakh Hindu adults are voters for the parliamentary elections, but not for the assembly. Why?
70. The duration of the J&K assembly is six years and not 5 years as in other states. Why?

to kill Chatrapati Shivaji, in Pratapgarh (Maharashtra)?
72. Do you support the building of a Masjid for Babar, a looter and invader, at Ayodhya?
Do you consider that celebrating Valentine (Lovers) Day on 14th Feb. is
in tune with our culture? - when exactly after 9 months, i.e. on 14th
Nov. you celebrate Children's day.
74. What is so special about
Nehru liking children? Children are liked by one and all. Is it not
absurd to celebrate his birth day as Children's' Day? The real
Children's' Day should be Gokulashtami - Yes Lord Krishna. along with
his colleagues did all the antics of a child.
75. Hindu girls are
molested and gangraped in Bangladesh. Temples are burnt or destroyed
almost every day. Why none of our secularists and Human Rights
Activists raise their voice for Hindus in Bangladesh. Are Human Rights
only for Muslims?
76. Are you aware that Islam does not believe in
nationalism and national boundaries. It wants to bring the whole world
under Islam - from Darul Harab to Darul Islam?
77. A 65 years
oldJihadihas remarried his first-divorced wife for the 54th time. What
could have happened to the other 50+ wives he divorced. What type of
society it would be, can you just imagine? Do you want this type of
society in India?
78. Why Muslims go after building Masjids and
Madrassas, and not schools and colleges? Do you think Madrassas churn
out Scientists and Engineers?
79. Mohurram processions are being
taken out in Hindu majority areas. But Hindu religious processions are
not allowed throughJihadilocalities. Why? Does this not perpetuate the
communal divide?
80. Is a Dist. Magistrate/Police Commissioner
justified in treating a particular area in our country as alien
territory (by not allowing Hindu processions there)? Is he not
violating our constitution? Is he not abetting communal divide?
In six states - J&K, Punjab, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Mizoram
and Nagaland - where Hindus are minorities, they do not have minority
rights. But others who are in majority still enjoy minority rights
there? Is this not ridiculous?
82. In which Islamic States are
Hindus extended the special rights that Muslims are accorded in India?
Likewise, in which Christian State, the Christian majority accorded
Hindus the special rights that India accords the Christians?
Do you know that Mother Teresa projected a negative image of India - of
dying without dignity - to make money. Did she ever attempt to
counter-balance this image?
84. Do you think that Nehru family is
the only family which fought for freedom or there were other freedom
fighters too? - like Bhagat Singh, Chandrasekhar Azad, Madan Lal
Dingra, Vaanchinathan, Chapekar Brothers, Veer Savarkar, Raj Guru,
Subhash Chandra Bose, Udam Singh, etc.
85. There are some pockets
in Godhra where Sales Tax/ Income Tax/Electricity Personnel cannot
enter. Even policemen do not tread, unless in huge numbers. This is not
the case where Hindus are in majority. Can you explain the reason?
In support of Ishrat Jahan, the lovely terrorist from Mumbra shot dead
by the Ahmedabad police, the whole locality observed a Bandh and every
one participated in her funeral. If this is not supporting terrorism,
what it is?
87. China is still showing Arunachal Pradesh as its
territory. Will you please ask a Communist to condemn this? He will
not. For Left outfits, Communist camaraderie comes before the interest
of the nation. Are Communists nationalists?
88. "The list of those
I want to kill is very long, but I will shoot Modi if I am given a
pistol" said Vijay Tendulkar. Do you consider him a Human Rights
Activist or a terrorist?
89. In Mallapuram (Kerala), a doctor
found that 3 generations ofJihadiwomen - daughter-13, mother- 26 and
grandmother-39 - all pregnant being admitted for delivery. Do you still
think that family planning is unnecessary for Muslims?
90. Lalu
Prasad Yadav gave a resounding slap on the face of judiciary by
derisively and openly notifying his palatial house as Jail. Do you
still feel all are equal before law?
91. The author of Ramanayan,
Rishi Valmiki, was a bandit. Same way, the author of Mahabharat, Veda
Vyas, was a fisherman. Both the epics and the authors are revered by
all Hindus. Do you still think that Hinduism supports casteism?
In 2002, the Karnataka Govt.'s revenue from temples was Rs.72 crores.
Out of this, 50 crores were given to Madrassas, 10 crores to Churches
and only 10 crores to Temples. Why Hindus should pay for development of
Madrassas (terrorist factories) and Churches?
93. When Taliban
demolished the Buddha statue in Afghanistan, Times of India wrote that
it was in reaction to the demolition of Babri mosque. Do you agree to
this justification by TOI? Is tit-for-tat OK? Then why do you criticize
Gujarat riots in reaction to Godhra carnage?
94. "Genocide"
"Holocaust" are the words used by the media for the riots in Gujarat.
But do you know that Jews and Parsis were never persecuted and lived
and prospered in total freedom in India?
95. In Pondicherry
aJihadiwas denied burial because he constructed a temple for Lord
Muruga. Do you still think "Religions do not teach to hate one
96. Why Mother Teresa did not stay in her native
country, Albenia, and help poor there? Why Greham Staines did not stay
in Australia and help needy people there? Why Sonia Gandhi selects
India, and not Italy, for her service to the poor? Why do you want
imported leaders - like imported religion and imported products? Is
India a land for all and sundry?
97. Are you aware that illegal
immigrants from Bangladesh are settled in an area where Hindu
candidates win by a narrow margin, so as to change the trend in the
next election?
98. In 1989 election manifesto of Congress, Rajiv
Gandhi declared that if the people of Mizoram voted the Congress to
power, it would run the govt. on the basis of teachings of Bible. If
this is not communalism, what it is?
99. Shaikh-al-Sayeed Yusuf
Sayed Hashim al Rifai of Kuwait, the chairman of the
WorldJihadiMinority Community, was allowed to land in Kerala without
visa. He was not only not arrested but was given royal treatment as a
guest of the govt. of Kerala and was provided with govt. cars to enable
him to carry on conversion. Is this promoting nationalism?
100. If
aJihadiin Britain or USA (secular countries) cannot marry more than one
woman, why should he be allowed in India to marry more?
101. The
Pope was invited to visit India, but the King of Nepal, Mahendra, was
not allowed to participate in the Makar Sankaranti function at Nagpur
in 1965? Is this secularism?
102. In the Hindu Code Bill, a Hindu
is defined as not being a Muslim, Christian, or Parsi. It is an
inclusive and unifying definition - to include all others - Sikhs,
Jains, Buddhists, etc. Then how come our present- day politicians have
fragmented the Hindu society, can you ponder?
103. Tipu Sultan
wanted to Islamise the entire south India. He was prevented from doing
so by the British, as British wanted to rule them. So he had to fight
the British first. Is he a Indian freedom fighter? If yes, are Babar,
Aurangazeb, Afzal Khan, Gazhni, etc. too?
104. An English daily
published Sonia Gandhi's speech on Hinduism under the column of
spiritualism! Is this not ridiculous, and insulting Hinduism too? Have
our presspersons become intellectually bankrupt?
105. Ashoka and
Kanishka ruled Afghanistan. Khandari, mother of Duryodhana, came from
Khandar, now in Afghanistan. Do you believe that Afghanistan was once
an integral part of India?
106. Our Sanatan Dharm was time
immemorial. But still Bharatvarsh was continually partitioned - Iran,
Afghanistan, Burma, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh, etc. Today
Kashmir is with India not because of Sanatan Dharma but because of our
security forces. Do you agree that for dismembering Bharat, one has to
target our Sanatan Dharm.
107. The Baptist Church in Tripura was
set up by missionaries from New Zealand 60 years ago. Do you think the
Church will promote nationalism?
108. Students in Pakistan are
taught from the very beginning that Hindus are our enemies, that Hindus
can never be our friends and that Kafirs (Hindus) are to be killed. Do
you still think that friendship is possible with Pakistan?
The defence establishment of secular America observes Church services
for Good Friday, a pure religious ritual, and deliberately asks
evangelists to address security personnel. Can you imagine the Indian
Army or Navy or Air Force doing a puja and inviting a Shankaracharya to
address them?
110. Pakistan is an Islamic country. But for a
by-pass surgery or cancer operation, they come to India. How come a
country, which has developed nuclear weapon, did not develop good
hospitals and world class doctors? Does this mean that Pakistanis are
only trigger happy, at the cost of development and health services?
Communist leader Stalin's daughter, Swetlana, wished to marry Dinesh
Singh's brother and settle in India. Our Communists and Indira Gandhi
opposed this. How do they now support an Italian lady?
112. When
Yoga has become a multimillion dollar industry in USA, why our govt. is
blind to this human- development technology? Is it because it is a part
of Hindu culture?
113. In a Pooja, the `sankalpa' begins with
"Bharata varshe, Bharata kande ...". What are they? Do you still think
that spiritualism and nationalism are different or are they the two
eyes of the nation?
114. Spiritualism and nationalism are
inseparable in Bharat. Don't you think that without spiritualism Bharat
will be like a body without soul?
115. Why should practising my
religion or wearing my religious symbol hurt the feelings of other
religionists, when their practising their religion or wearing their
religious symbol does not hurt me at all? If this is not religious
hatred, what else is?
116. Is it not true that from 1920, the
Britishers, knowing that their rule is going to end soon, started
doling out large plots of land to Christian organisations and Churches
at throw away prices?
117. Kanchi Shankaracharya is not allowed to
perform pooja and eat the food he likes, but Pappu Yadav is allowed all
facilities inside Jail, including Mobile phone facility for contacting
even Bihar Jail Mantri. Is this equality before law?
118. Muslims
convicts in jail are allowed time for Namaz and also given all
facilities for observing Ramzan fasting. Then why Kanchi
Shankaracharya, only an accused, is denied facilities for performing
Puja in jail?
119. Armstrong, the US astronaut, landed in moon in
1969. Since then many astronauts have done so. Can you inform this to
yourJihadifriend and see whether he admits this fact?
120. Temples
are over-crowded in TN. Durga pooja is celebrated on a grand scale in
West Bengal. Still in both the states, the God-fearing people vote for
atheists. Why?
121. In Hinduism, you find a lot of `Reformers'. Why such reformers are not found in other religions? Do they not need reform?

I dont believe we are cowards. We are divided, selfish at times , ignorant, but not cowards..... how else did we survive centuries of onslaught against our nation and dharma. But it is time to wake people and spread the message and the threat to our nation.
